Most of the time, the only interaction you have with a squirrel is during your drive home from work when one runs out in the street and you’re like, “Do I really want to avoid it this time?” The answer is always yes because we are good people.
But maybe we shouldn’t be trying to avoid them, because they seem like they’re a little unstable. One squirrel in Florida went absolutely mad inside a senior center. It went inside the activity center and started attacking the old folks inside.
In the bizarre 911 call, the person on the phone said, “We had a squirrel that entered our building, and it’s in our activity room. It’s jumping on people and biting them and scratching them. We need help.”
In the background, you can hear people screaming and saying things like, “I feel light-headed, I don’t feel good,” which to be fair to the squirrel, sounds pretty normal for people over the age of 65.
Three victims were treated at the hospital. One lady had to get 10 stitches on her arm, so the little squirrel managed to do a lot of damage. It’s not clear what happened to the squirrel, but the senior center has put out traps to hopefully prevent this from happening again.
